Disguised Beetle - Auger Borer (Bostrychoplites cornutus) Family Bostrichidae

This was the first look I had of him and he looks very fiercy.
It is about 1 inch in length but as you can see, very slender.
Then came the time to see if I could get a shot of his underside and guess what?
Those fierce looking horns were nothing more than a disguise!! LOL!!
